'Strange sound' is not very indicative of the type of sound you're hearing. Could you be a little more precise? Is it for example, a buzzing noise, a high pitched whine or what?
So, today while I was playing World of Warcraft, my computer started making strange noises at me. At first I thought I had left an internet tab open or something because I kept hearing commercials and pop news highlights coming through my speakers. But after making sure that everything was shut off, the noises kept coming. Upon further inspection through my volume mixer I found this strange program producing noise but it had a "No Name Available" as a descriptor.
I have run Malwarebytes Pro and Combo and uninstalled everything that I had run today but it still persists. I even did a full system restore dating back a couple weeks yet the noises keep coming. PLEASE HELP! I have no idea what's causing this and it is literally driving me batty. Any ideas?
Desperate for answers,

Have you checked your EAX console? Do that by right clicking the audio icon you should be able to see in systray and then open the EAX Console. It will look something like the one you see in the screenshot. You'll see different options like "Haunted Cavern", "Jazz Club" etc., which produce different effects when audio is played. They may have different descriptions depending on the sound card manufacturer, but maybe that's where the culprit lies.
It is a series of Commercials, crying cats, people laughing, tvshow news and random music. From what I could make out of the jumble at least.
